“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” –Audrey Hepburn
I don’t know about you, but here at The HEAL Project we are stepping in to 2017 with our hope and optimism intact. We believe in the work we do and we have seen the positive impacts we’ve made on children’s lives, it’s what keeps us going everyday. In this new year, let’s follow the lesson we learn from our garden - stay grounded and keep reaching for the light!
Hatch Garden Open House
Join us in the newly renovated Hatch Garden on Friday, February 3rd at 4pm for an open house and garden tour! All are welcome to join, no RSVP needed. Meet us in the garden, located at the north end of the Hatch playground. We’re excited to show you all the work we've done to rebuild the Hatch garden, ensuring that Hatch students have a garden classroom to learn and explore in for years to come!
Last year we were awarded a grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) to improve wildlife habitat and water conservation at the San Mateo County School Farm. With grant funding, we installed a 5,000 gallon water catchment tank and thanks to these winter rains the tank is now full! We also installed a native plant hedgerow for beneficial insect habitat and raptor poles for our hawk population. Forever a work in progress, each new project makes the farm that much better!
